Feel part of the community in Lewes

Feel part of the community in Lewes

For many older people who are looking to move home this year, there will be a desire to head away from the cities and the bright lights associated with these sorts of dwellings, and towards something where they can find a more small town style community that welcomes them in and gives them events to take part in.

If you feel like this is what you are looking for when you are trying to find a new location to live in, why not turn your eye towards many of the rural market towns around the UK, and particularly have a look at property for sale in Lewes?

The town is perfectly located in East Sussex, with much green land surrounding it, giving the ideal sort of landscape for those who want to get out into the countryside, perhaps taking up rambling or walking and getting a chance to get closer to nature as a result.

The fact that it plays host to only 16,000 residents also makes it ideal for these sort of homebuyers, as it will make them feel like they are part of a small and tight-knit community which is perfect for older people looking for a bit of a change.

In smaller settlements, it is often the case that events are prevalent as a way of bringing all locals together in a traditional way, and Lewes is no different. The town's most prominent such event is the Bonfire Night celebration which takes place on each November 5th. It is famed as being the largest gathering of the kind in the whole country, and includes locals commemorating the gunpowder plot's foiling, as well as others who were killed in the area for political beliefs in history.

When living in smaller areas like this however, it will still be important to have good links to other areas outside of the town that you are living in, and Lewes does not disappoint in this area. The train station in the town is served by hourly trains to London which allow people to have days out and shopping trips in the capital.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801376194-ADNFCR
